Milton Harold Gilmore, age 84, passed away on November 17th, 2015 after a lengthy illness. He was born in Seattle, Washington to Harold and Margit Gilmore.

Milton spent most of his life there and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1949. After graduating, he joined the United States Air Force and served in the 4750th Air Base Squadron. He then subsequently worked for Toledo Scales and Ecolab from which he retired after many years.

In his retirement, Milton enjoyed traveling with his wife Frances to more temperate climates to escape the Seattle winters. He and his wife went to places such as Mexico, Hawaii and Palm Springs. In the summer months, they stayed at Lake Chelan, where he thoroughly enjoyed boating and water skiing. Milton was an avid fitness enthusiast and spent several days a week at the gym.

He is survived by his wife Frances of 55 years, children Debra Zayac and Terri Gilmore, step-children Sue Munroe and Charles Divelbiss, sister Mary Lynn Farrar and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Milton will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.
